On Friday, I had a 30-minute session with my personal trainer at 6:30 am. (Yes, 6:30 am). I hadn’t done that in a few years, so I wasn’t sure if I could adjust. My body is already programmed to wake up at 6:00 am for work; if I know that I need to get up, I will usually wake up a little earlier anyway.
My session started with a 5-minute warm-up on the treadmill followed by push-ups, leg presses, and other exercises. The majority of them was easy to moderate. I was able to work up a good sweat. I felt awesome as I drove to work. Being a wife and working mother, 6:30 am is an excellent option twice weekly, with my third weekly workout being after work or on Saturday.
In the past month, I’ve lost 3 pounds. I eat well-balanced meals, healthier snacks, like fruit or nuts, and I drink a cup of green tea everyday. I make sure that I drink enough water during the day…8-10 glasses per day. I will still meet with a dietician. He contacted me and sent a questionnaire to fill out before we meet. I’ve decided to go with private training sessions. If I’m not working with the same one, he will be able to match me with a compatible trainer.
